Title: Governor's Commission on Higher Education Reform, Innovation and Investment


1
  • Governor's Commission on Higher Education Reform,
    Innovation and Investment

Dr. Charles W. Steger President
2
Partnerships for University Research and Economic
Development 
  • Forging effective public-private partnerships
  • and regional strategies
  • For business recruitment, workforce preparation,
    and university-based research

3
Research and Competitiveness
  • Innovation is and has been the strong
    underpinning of this states and the nations
    economy.
  • To maintain our economic strength we need to
    "protect our innovation ecosystem."
  • But we are losing this crucial competitive
    advantage.
  • Requires a mix of factors including research
    universities, RD centers, government funded
    research, the venture capital industry and the
    free enterprise system.
